Please create a new report on
Developer Community with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
Steps to reproduce:
Activate on Windows, but don't connect to a build host
Open a new project
a) The project should load even though the build host comes up
b) The build host configuration dialog shouldn't appear until the user needs to configure the build host (on run/debug)
The project sits loading in the solution explorer until the user closes the build host config dialog
PJ this is the behavior when you don't have any build host configured.
We can remove this behavior, but IIRC the idea was to ask the user to configure the build host on the first run.
Yeah the issue is that the build host connection dialog is blocking the project from loading, not that it appears (it should definitely appear!)
I'm assuming we can fully load the project in this situation without blocking because of the dialog.
REOPENING because it was invalidly resolved invalid :D
PJ is a modal dialog :)
You need to dismiss in order to continue.
After hit close, the load fails?
Can we not keep loading the project in the background? If it's really impossible then that's fine - it just seems weird to me that we can't keep loading the project while the user selects a build host.
Visual Studio apparently load the project in the UI thread, and as we are displaying a modal dialog, Visual will not finish the loading until we close the dialog. We could try delay the dialog display, Is up to you :)
This is fixed by jtorres' changes to make the dialog non-modal.
When the connection dialog appears, the solution is now also loaded.
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:
We have observed that we are able to load project successfully in VS. While VS is not connected to build host. And 'connect to build host' window appears when user click on Refresh button.
Changing the status of this issue to Verified.
